Recipe by Jordi Valles

Gilda means lollipop, and the classic Gilda is a simple assembly of a guindilla (Spanish chile pepper), an anchovy and an olive. The combination of good-quality pinkish anchovies, smallish, crisp, unwrinkled chillies and a freshly pitted olive produce a sophisticaded mélange.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 12 ounces marinated anchovies packed in oil
  • 10 ounces guindilla chilies, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 8 ounces pitted green olives


  1. Curl up each anchovy and thread it onto a cocktail stick, along with two or three guindilla chillies and an olive.
